The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced two new revenue-based disaster and pandemic programs, the Emergency Relief Program (ERP) Phase Two and the Pandemic Assistance Revenue Program (PARP) in January. The deadline to apply for assistance has been extended to July 14, 2023.

ERP Phase Two and PARP are programs designed to fill remaining gaps in natural disaster assistance for 2020 and 2021. These new updates will ensure that benefits are more reflective of producers’ actual crop losses resulting from past years.

Additionally, the USDA’s Farm Service Agency is partnering with nine organizations to provide educational and technical assistance to agricultural producers who need assistance completing an ERP Phase Two application.
